Best Baby Brine Shrimp Sieve?


Recommended Posts

Much depends on how much time you want to spend, and what your goals are. If you want an absolutely pristine tank after feeding artemia nauplii, it is understandable why you might be eager to work with a sieve. The company provides som videos to diagnose various issues. Here's one

Honestly, though, I dislike this approach. Instead, I prefer to take air out of hatchery, allow hatched artemia to fall below and shells to rise up. Then I draw out Artemis with a baster, moving over to a specimen container with clean water in. This dilutes the salt content, and allows another stage of separation to occur. Live baby brine shrimp will remain suspended in the water column while unwanted shells and cysts either float or sink to the bottom. I then harvest with a syringe and feed. Very little undesired material pollutes my tanks this way.

However, the process is not perfect. If you want perfection . . . I'd suggest trying something besides artemia.
